I have been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, doctor gave me Lialda. I am also experiencing painful mouth ulcers, a lot of them can't eat or hardly talk. Had anyone else had this same problem? Also how long does it take for Lialda to start working?
The way Lialda was described to me is: the pill is a shell which contains mesalamine. The shell is built to not dissolve until it registers a specific PH which does not occur until it reaches the large intestine (colon.) With that description and definition, one would think it would not help anything "oraly." If what is going on in your colon is causing your mouth issue, maybe there is something to it. As many of us patients say, we're not doctors, we just play them on the internet! lol
